In Memoir Cocktail

Competition Cointreau.

NUVO Daily Edit: Cointreau Recipe

Cointreau is in search of a Canadian muse—the country’s most creative female bartender. A nation-wide competition, “Mademoiselle Cointreau”, is underway, collecting 10 finalists from Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, and Montreal to compete in the grand finale in Toronto this December. Each competitor has been tasked with creating a unique recipe centred on Cointreau, specifically the classic Cointreau Fizz cocktail.

The In Memoir cocktail was created by Calgary finalist Madeleine MacDonald of Model Milk bistro.
